When I looked at this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge and saw it was -Banish the Blues, a humourous card to cheer us up, I instantly thought of this image. Sorry I don't know what its called or who's make it is, I received it along with some other images as a gift from another crafter.
I decided to follow the sketch on the Wags and Whiskers challenge #47. I used papers from an old pad and coloured with a mix of Copics, Prismas and Sakura gelly roll pens. I know, I know the colouring is pityful, but theres not alot you can do with this image, in terms of fancy colouring. A strip of stripey ribbon was added to follow the sketch.
I really love these funny sentiments, but its not my normal style and caused a bit of a problem, as I had to think up how to finish the design without using my usual feminine flowers or cutie embellishments.
So I decided on something totally different. I made some candles from a couple of cotton bud sticks, with a little flower stamen threaded through and the end cut off. And then I coloured the end of one red to make a match. I did however add quite a few gems, well I did have to go a bit girlie, didnt I ?
